Weddings After Covid

We are hopefully at the end of a global pandemic. Or close to the end. States are slowly lifting restrictions. Beaches and hiking trails are opening. The world is starting to baby steps work it’s way back to “normal.” But will we ever be normal again when it comes to special events and weddings? I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately and below are a list of things that I predict we’ll see in weddings in the next year or so. I may be way off base, but if you’re in the middle of wedding planning, you might want to adopt some of these ideas for your “post covid wedding.” I hope this leaves you feeling hopeful and hopeless and inspires new and creative ideas as you try and move forward with your new wedding plans.

Smaller guest counts: I think this one is a given. Especially since it’s under the governor’s order at this point. But even if it wasn’t, I believe that couples really do have their friends and families best interest at heart and they don’t want others to be fearful at their wedding. No one wants that! So, it’s natural that the 400 person wedding may not be making a comeback this year (or next).

Summer Pom Purse DIY

We’re officially in summer folks! And guess what, if you live in CA, you’re probably still in quarantine under the stay at home order for the covid pandemic. Wow.

Wedding Planning During Covid-19

What a crazy time to be alive. Better yet, what a time to be planning a wedding! Every phone call I have with my clients is filled with concern, uncertainty, and more questions than answers. In some ways it feels like the world has come to a halt. And in others, it feels like weeks are passing by and we are just left treading water. If any of that feels familiar -I feel for you couples!

Simone & Shakun’s OC Two-Day Wedding

Not even sure where to begin with this one… Simone and Shakun set out to blend both of their cultures with a 2 day EXTRAVAGANZA back in February. It just so happened to be my birthday weekend, and since my last bday wedding was SUCH a success, I thought it would be so fun! They essentially wanted Friday to be the Hindu ceremony and reception and then Saturday would be the Christian ceremony and reception – it was a jam packed weekend and we pulled it off! It was such a success. Not even the threat of rain would shut us down! I’m so proud of the work we did to make this day a success – scroll through to see all the gorgeous details and florals captured by Emily of Anna Delores Photography and don’t miss their epic video at the end!

Day 1: Loads of color!
